The third semester folows the two period semester scheme adopted at KTH but courses will also span two periods in length and then only have one examination period at the end of the second period.
The programme is course-based. Lists of courses are included in Appendix 1: Course list
Courses in the first and the second cycle are graded on a scale from A to F. A-E are passing grades, A is the highest grade. The grades pass (P) and fail (F) are used for courses under certain circumstances.
For courses given by KTH and IST a seven level scale A-F, where A-E is passed, is used. Courses may also use the grades passed (P) or failed (F).
